Revelstoke’s Julia Dorrius came home with first place from a squash tournament in Summerland last weekend.

Dorrius won the Ladies C Division at SquashFEST, winning all three of her matches and only dropping one set along the way.

She won her first game 3-0, second game 3-1, and then beat Beth Barberre of Edmonton in the finals.

“Julia played fantastic squash all weekend,” said her father and coach Kevin Dorrius. “Despite it being a summer tournament, the event attracts many very strong players.”

Up next for the Revelstoke Junior Squash Team is the Revelstoke Junior Open from Oct. 2–4.
